Announcements

STARTING ON SUNDAY OCTOBER 4, 2020, CELC WILL BEGIN ONE WORSHIP SERVICE STARTING AT 9:15AM, FOLLOWED BY SUNDAY SCHOOL.

COVID-19 UPDATES:
*10/23/2020 – Christ is risen!  He is risen indeed!  

According to current information regarding the phased reopening of services in Indiana, we will be allowed to fully reopen the church for services.  

This is the information that pertains to you as a member of Christ Lutheran: 

1. Those of you who are 65 and older have been encouraged to remain sheltering in place.
Please join us in online worship.  We also encourage others who feel more comfortable waiting to return to join us in online worship as well.  

2. Please wear a mask to cover your mouth and nose at the service.  This has been encouraged by the Indiana guidelines for the phased reopening.  

3. In worship, those in the same family may sit together.  Those of separate family units should sit at least six feet away from each other.  

4. If you have been experiencing any illness, we encourage you to stay at home.   

5.  For those who wish to commune, I will explain communion details on Sunday.

We are trying to follow the guidelines set out for us; if there is anything being overlooked here, please let me know.  

We look forward to seeing all of you return soon.  

Please call me if I can help in any way, or if you would like me to pray with you.

In Christ, 
Pastor Truelsen
